In Between Seasons by Cassandra Giovanni: Author/Character Interviews, & Giveaway

Show n'ot Tell Publishing Presents:

In 2021 the world as we know it changed. The government collapsed, and the worst characteristics of human nature were shown as the world fell into ruins. Years after The Fall, the Tribes that were established are still at war. They still fight to keep what they pillaged, and most of all, they fight to keep their lies a secret. In a world filled with deception, nothing is as it seems.
I was born into this world.
Hunter Marks was molded into this world; a General— a person cold and harsh. A person meant to kill me.
We were told to just believe.
We were taught to never question.
We’re supposed to be robots, and accept our roles in this altered society.
Too bad Hunter and I don’t follow the rules.
And we’re a hell of a lot stronger than they ever thought possible.
They’ve been searching for the world’s deadliest weapon.
It’s me.
And I’m not following the leader any more.

Cassandra doesn't remember a time when she wasn't writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character's stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England their dogs, Bubski and Kanga.

Please welcome In Between Seasons author Cassandra Giovanni to Diane's Book Blog.

What is your favorite part of the story, In Between Seasons? 

When Hunter starts teaching Kate how to fight. I love the way he antagonizes her and it's flitacious.

How long did it take you to write In Between Seasons?

The first time it took about six months, the re-write for the re-release took about two months.

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

Hunter and Kate for sure. They know how to live like that.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

Jane Austen is my favorite author. Her writing is nothing like my own, but I appreciate her take on human nature.

What is your typical day like?   

Get up at 5:30, work out, get ready for work, get to work by 7:30, work-work-work until 5:00, get home, make dinner and then depending on the day write or study for 1.5-2 hours. Then it's bed time.      
Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I'm currently working on finishing the Beautifully Flawed series, and I am in between all three of the novels. Here is something I wrote a few days ago:
Bobby smiled at me and my heart lifted. He looked so happy—so put back together, as if nothing had happened—as if he wasn’t…dead. I swallowed, but he was, so this was a dream.
“Hey, Riv,” he said and the voice sent a shock to my system. My whole body trembled with the joy of hearing that voice. It actually sounded like him.
“Hey, Bobby,” I replied and my legs finally moved. I sat down on the ground next to him and our heads tilted to the sun.
He looked like the angel he was as the sun cascaded over his sculpted features and reflected off of the blonde highlights in his messy hair.
“So…” Bobby began, opening one eye and glancing down at me.
“Scott Brighton?”
I felt the pleasure in his presence fade as the chill the name brought coming from his mouth washed over me.
